Choosing a memorial is a difficult and emotional choice. By contacting us we will be able to help with your or their choice.
When choosing tombstones, it is important to familiarize yourself with the various cemetery regulations that regulate the size of the tomb monument and what type of stone can be used. In some cemeteries, their own fields are reserved for natural stones, urn stones or pebbles. We know which rules apply and can therefore help in that way.
Choosing stone from a picture in a brochure or on the internet is an uncertain choice without first contacting the company that has this brochure or page. Often the pictures of the tombstones are taken from the front and therefore you never get a real picture of what the stone looks like on the other sides. If you want your own design of the tombstone, your own design or special wishes, it is easier to talk about the table than through a telephone. Therefore, one of our sellers will come to your home so that nothing is left to chance.
Here are some helpful moments that will help:
1. Fully polished headstone or raw edges?
If a fully polished stone is selected, this is maintenance-free and the costs of subsequent refurbishment are significantly reduced. In addition, these stones remain forever in the tombstone context. When choosing stones that are chiseled, sandblasted, flamed or otherwise set, greenery and moss / low are a theme. There are still many who like the contrasts that the raw setting provides in combination with polished surfaces. We give advice and tips on how such stones can be kept equal and still appear as beautiful monuments.
2. Size of the tombstone
How many names should stand on the stone?
A tombstone on an urn grove shall not be higher than 80 cm, wider than 75 cm and thicker than 60 cm. maximum weight is 150 kg.
For coffin graves, the burial memory shall not be higher than 150 cm, wider than 85 cm and thicker than 60 cm. Maximum weight is 300 kg.
In some cases, however, exemptions may be granted if special circumstances permit.
In many cases, our customers get customized their own stone even though we have a large selection to choose from. Should the stone be asymmetrical, rectangular or shaped like a heart, an angel?
